{Abstract}

Wisdom Method™ yoga therapy is grounded in the philosophy of embodied energy: the physical informs the energetic and the energetic affects the physical.

In Yoga Therapy for Structural Integrity, we investigate the use of person-centered sequencing and asana as a therapeutic tool to achieve structural integration in all our bodies systems: from the outer to the inner.

We investigate the ‘tie that binds’ — the fascial system — throughout this training, looking at its role in posture, acture, and asana. We also look at the continuous demands on our physical form from the ever-present force of gravity and how to effortlessly balance ourselves so that gravity flows through us with minimal strain. Furthermore, we dive deep into a seasonal, person-centered approach to yoga therapy, moving beyond the role of ‘yoga teacher’ to become a catalyst for holistic healing. Relational anatomy, postural observation, artful assists, professionalism in our practice, and person-centered yoga therapy are the continuous threads that inform this training.

All yoga teachers are welcome to advance their teaching practice with this specialized look at yoga asana as a tool for whole-body balance and structural ease. This training is a required module in the 700-hr Yoga Therapy, Level 1 program. The 700-hour program is an advanced yoga therapy training open to all certified yoga teachers.
